Enter Kate, housekeeper, companion and shoulder to cry on.
She's here to pick up the pieces and fix what isn't completely broken.
But can Maggie trust Kate? And why is Kate so keen to help? When Bill falls for another woman, Maggie realizes she will have to fight to put her family back together - but will they still want her?
